Getting ready for trip tomorrow
Friday, November 20, 2009
I have been bustling around packing and getting ready to leave for NYC tomorrow. I have let the food in our refrigerator get down to bare bones so I told my DH he may be eating pancakes for dinner tomorrow! Still have some laundry and housework to do before I leave but most of the packing is done. I'm taking a full 50 pounds in my suitcase that gets checked (JetBlue lets you check one bag for free up to 50 pounds... yeah!) I'm taking as much food and supplies as possible as I can buy cheaper here than in Manhattan. I spoke with my sister on the phone today and she is on her way back after spending 3 weeks with my brother. She found few bargains however mentioned she is bringing back SF Jello. It is $1 per box here and she found it at Walgreens there 3 for $1... go figure! Anyway, for those of you who have been following the situation, my brother is improving. He was at the doctor a few days ago and the doctor was SHOCKED at the amount of improvement that has been made. Thank you so much for your prayers... they work! He is gaining weight and strength and is showing some of his old spark. I think the plan my sister and I worked out to get him back on his feet and to work just may fly. I'll blog more about his progress and the situation over the next few weeks. I'm going to miss having Thanksgiving here in Oregon with my family here but will do my best to have some fun in the Big Apple. If any of my Sparkfriends are going to be in Manhattan over the next 3 weeks, please consider sending me SparkMail as I would love to meet for a cup of coffee... or for a Pinkberry! I am addicted to Pinkberry... if you haven't had one they are OMG good and low calorie too.... sort of like low fat frozen yogurt. Everything is super fresh and yummy and they are only a block away over from my bros apartment.
Thanks for stopping by and especially thank you for all your postive comments , prayers and support. Have a wonderful week-end.
